Hero Destroyed is a hybrid heavy unit from Pittsburgh, PA whose abrasive 11-track potpourri pummels eardrums from start to finish. Equally capable of blasting out a grind beat (“Army of Draccoons”) or scraping the bottom of the heavy riff barrel to come up with spastic shards of six-string nastiness (“You Might As Well Go With Plan B”), this quintet callously exhibit a dastardly sense of dexterity with unabashed hardcore heft and rounds of razor sharp metalcore (“Justifying the Hypothetical”) anchoring their punishing presentation (“The Last Upper”). Despite yielding a clinical feel that flattens out the overall experience, Hero Destroyed unleashes a collection of songs fueled with undeniable raw power and dissonant aggression and should appease those into cross-pollinated modern metal.
